Worldwide Energy & Manufacturing USA, Inc. Provides Update on Facility in Nantong, China

Company Expects to Benefit From Lower Overhead Costs and Continues to Add Personnel to Support Growth

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - Worldwide Energy & Manufacturing USA, Inc. (OTCBB: WEMU) ("Worldwide" or the "Company"), a rapidly growing supplier of photovoltaic (PV) solar modules under the 'Amerisolar' brand, today provided an update on its photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing and research facility in Nantong, China.

The Company's Nantong facility, which began operations in late July 2010, is constructed on a green-field site and has a current manufacturing capacity of 100 megawatts (MW) per year. The site is large enough to accommodate two building expansions that, if such expansion occurred, would increase its total manufacturing capacity to 300 MW per year. Worldwide's state-of-the-art Research & Development ("R&D") center, located in its Nantong facility is focused on increasing system and module efficiency and is led by a team of experts in PV solar technology. The Company's R&D team has filed several patents to improve and expand its product portfolio.

"We continue to add personnel at our Nantong facility, not only on the production side, but also on the R&D side," stated Jimmy Wang, CEO of Worldwide. "This is the first U.S.-based renewable energy facility in the Rugao municipality in Nantong, and community officials were very pleased that we chose this location. From a manpower standpoint, we have recently increased the number of technicians and engineers and our overall workforce in order to increase the production output from this facility. We anticipate that this new facility will enable us to enhance our gross margin as we increase our production rates in the future."
